The Health Sciences Magnet students have the the opportunity to participate in one of the most dynamic growth industries in the United States. Students receive broad-based preparation for careers in healthcare and scientific research through one of two program pathways as they pursue either a Core 40, Academic, or Technical Honors Diploma.

Career and Technical Education (CTE)

There are more than 20 CTE programs in the SBCSC and all SBCSC students can enroll regardless of which school they attend. Transportation is provided. The following programs are here at Washington:

Free or reduced meals and textbooks

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a free meal option for schools and school districts in low-income areas. CEP allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students without collecting household applications. However, since there is only one application for meals and textbooks, SBCSC will only be reimbursed for textbooks if you fill out the form. Be sure to check and digitally sign the textbook section. The form is here: https://family.titank12.com/. If you have any questions, call our office at 574-393-6059.

Payments for textbook fees can be taken over the phone with a credit or debit card by calling 574-393-6099. When Textbook Rental Invoices are mailed you can pay with a credit card by putting the card number on the provided space on the invoice or with a check or money order through the mail. You can also come in person to the fourth floor of the Administration Building to the Fees Cashier's office to pay with cash, check, money order, or credit/debit card.

Title 1

Title I funding is federal funding designated to target academic intervention for our most struggling students. Simply, our hope is to increase the number of students who stay in high school through graduation.

Title I plans to offer after school tutoring and a summer school opportunity in June and again in August for identified students. With this funding we have been able to hire two family and community school specialists. Mrs. Tracy King will work with 9th grade families and Mr. Darren Batteast will work with 10th grade families. Title I will expand in fall to offer intensive intervention courses in Algebra I and English 10.
